To Create a New Menu-Item

  1. Do one of the following:

    Select File > Settings > User > Customize Ribbon .


    Right-click in the blank space in the ribbon and select Customize Ribbon from the pop-up menu.

    The Customize Ribbon dialog opens.

  2. In the list below Customize the Ribbon, navigate to the desired workflow, tab, group and the split button or drop-down button in which you want to add the new menu-item.
  3. Click New Menu Item.

  4. (Optional) In the Properties section, set the following:
    1. To change the label of the menu-item, enter the new label in the Label field.
    2. In the Key-in field, enter the key-in that should be executed when the menu-item is selected.
    3. To change the icon, in the Icon field, click the Browse button on the right-side. The Define Icon for Tool dialog opens, from where you can select the icon for the new button or menu-item.
    4. To set the visibility, select the visibility expression from the Visibility drop-down list.
      Note: The Visibility property holds the name of a named expression that will be evaluated each time the active model is changed to determine whether the item should be displayed. The named expression should return a boolean (True or False) result in order to work properly as a Visibility property.
    5. Set other fields, as desired.
  5. Click Apply.
